Rail

it is addressed thusly:
An ode
it reads:
In the train we have united
Places very near and far
A moving bridge that comes and goes
With each passing car
Lightly we regard its form
Hulking beast of burden
Because it moves quicksilver speed
Our memory's uncertain
Along the metal road it ran
Distance was its river
To shrink the city's neighborhood
Must leave the Earth a-quiver!
Arriving where our feet may go
To correction we are charged
The neighborhoods were never shrunk
Instead, they were enlarged.
a postscript is here written:
apologies to heidegger
